Thought I would start this thread based on a quick flight I had last night and wanted to share and read stories of desperate/odd things others have done in the QMB.

Girlfriend jumped in bath, so i decided to get 20 mins in on QMB to practice my throttle and positioning for gunnery ; so....

I jumps in my Spitfire Vb and loaded up 2 JU88s and a JU87. Took down the 88s and the turned on the 87 gave him the good news with short burst and the ran out of ammo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif not to be denied my kill (as i only had about 5 mins before "The Jailor" emerged from the bath)I decided to ease up beside him about 5 feet to the left a little rudder and off came his tail with my prop. The downside a nice glide for me down into a field where I started a new life with my best friend a sheep.

Girlfriend jumped in bath

In all seriousness, one day you'll be old and need some memories. Next time jump in the bath with her.

I have become efficient in takeing off and landing most jets on aircraft carriers. The P-80 is easy to take off, slightly tricky to land, but once you get the hang of it, it is quite easy.

player TB3 vs 8 Ki-27. Man a gun and dog fight 'em http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I have also tried air bombing enemy bombers, I have found that if you set a time delay on a bomb and it hits the bomber, it will get stuck INSIDE the bomber and it will detonate after the correct time.
Another fun thing to do is fly the Me-163 against 4 Pe-8s loaded with the 5000 pounders, set the altitude to something that is stupidly low (200 - 500 feet) and hit the lead bomber and climb like hell, the trick is to do it and try and not sustain catastrophic damage.
I have also flown a TB-3 versus another TB-3, you have to adopt a "pirate ship" sort of attack, meaning that you have to fire from broadside to get a maximum number of hits.

Hi all,

Flying a Russian TB-3 Bomber against another TB-3. Swapping gun positions and piloting in between. And watching the pencil rolls in the Bombardier's position.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Or was it a crazy co-op that I created http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Best Regards,

to be too old to be in service by this time period. But I suppose that Japan might have
put everything back into service in a desperate last ditch effort to save the Islands. Is this what happened??

Sorry, not meaing to steal away from the threads original subject but find that intriguing.

Gettig back to the threads intent, I once tried to sink a carrier with the German Mistel. The Ju-88 with a big bomb in the nose that was unmanned and flown to target with a Fw-190A8 on top. Although this was not really done in QMB but FMB, I still consider it kind of a quick mission anyway. Would have tried it in QMB but it's not possible.

I finally hit the carrier after a bunch of tries and got some blast damage to the FW-190 but it was still flying which was all that ocunted for me. I had hit it several times before but always got killed as I was too close in my FW to the blast. Also got shot down by the horrid AAA from the carrier a trillion times.

Landing the TB-3 on a carrier is no easy task.

Also, I've attempted the Ultimate D3A Challenge. Google for it, I lost the link.

Try landing a J-8 on a Tashkent class destroyer, It's a bit of a thrill.

Craziest thing I've ever done in a quick mission? Il-2 vs Tb-3's, The AJ-2 cassette makes a great air to air weapon when used in a head on pass.

Craziest thing I've ever tried in a Full mission? I've tried a lot of crazy things, but probably the most fun was going bowling with a Me-321. Attach it to an He-111, Add a couple of fighters at the other end of the runway and see how many you can take out using the glider as a bowling ball.

Yeah as Snodrvr said, using the Casettes on the IL-2 as an air to air weapon. They have great area dispersion and pack a good explosion into anything they collect. Try flying head on into a flight and just flying above them and releasing right before they are going to pass under you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

O http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif very nice burn there.
But as to your question, get in a j8a, and then fill the enemy side with 16 me-262 on ace. Then proceed to see how long you can survive. I've even managed to get a few pot shots of into their engines and down some. Now that is entertaining.
I bet it would be fun to do this online, a bit of The fox and hounds game?
